This guide, with its coloured three dimensional illustrations provides a unique insight into the subject which can be appreciated visually as well as theoretically. The guide has been designed for the ships library and for those who want and need a deeper knowledge of this subject to improve the management of stability and stress in an operational environment. What differentiates this practical guide from other books is the completeness of its approach. Ships have to meet mandatory design criteria. Physics dictates the way forces then interact concerning the ships stability and strength both in calm water and in a seaway. Understanding these complex relationships more fully so that ships can be operated more effectively is the purpose.
